The best way to target your interview answers without sucking up to the interviewer: Know Thyself

I often advise candidates on targeting their answers in a job interview. But sometimes this gets misinterpreted. It's something hiring managers will complain about occasionally, "I think the candidate was just telling me what I want to hear." Avoiding that seems to be a very slippery slope, and a very fine line when trying to do your best in a job interview.

It is always a good idea to ask the interviewer what they feel are the most important qualifications to have in…

What makes me a smart recruiter

Great topic and great posts thus far, here are some things I think are essentials...

1) Being Proactive versus reactive - you must guide your candidate and client through the process and talk about things like other interviews and counteroffers long before those things come up. Get up front contracts with your candidates and clients on common struggling points- if you have the same thing repeatedly costing you from success- you MUST learn and keep that from happening by proactively… Continue

Being a Servant-Leader in recruiting

Robert Greenleaf, former Director of Management Research at AT&T, noted that:

The servant-leader is servant first...It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions.

In recruiting, and I've noticed that this occurs both on the… Continue

What Makes Me a Smart Recruiter

I've been thinking about this a bit, wanting to do a decent job at this, and not sound too big headed, which for those who know me will know it is tough for me to do, I have a great ego. I know there is no "i" in team, but there is a HUGE "ME" :)

1) I care, cliche? But what do I care about? My candidates? yes (within reason), my company? yes, its brand? yes, the viability of the EVP I'm selling? yes, the quality of the hires I (and my team) make? yes, my own Personal… Continue

You have no… Continue
